Our courses are devised by internationally renowned specialists. They are addressed to physicians as well as other health professionals. These professionals can range from highly skilled experts to those health professionals still under training.
Our courses are provided in electronic and multimedia version. They consist of several video lessons, that is, pre-recorded lessons, all of them accompanied by in-sync medical slides for illustrative purposes. As additional material, we present an abstract (summary) of the lesson content in audio or text (PDF) version. This includes bibliographical References and any links that might be of interest.
Each course ends with an assessment test. Participants must pass said test to have a Diploma with credits.

This form shall only be completed once so that you can access your first course after you complete your online subscription. Once subscribed, your codes (username [your email] and password) will serve as access to any of our e-Learning courses.
How to access any other course
Simply select a course by clicking on “Subscribe”. The subscription process is just the same. You will be asked: “Have you ever subscribed to any of our courses?” As this is not your first course, the system will recognize you: you should answer “yes”. Then, you just have to log in with your username [email] and password to access the menu (“Access”).
How to access “My Class”
Once you are subscribed, you will access a customized area called “My Class” (the student’s lesson). There you will find all the information regarding the courses you are subscribed to. You can access them, by continuing with the video lessons and take the respective self-assessment tests. In addition, you can download the Certificate or Diploma. Your academic data will be saved in “My Class”, where you can refer to all the courses you have taken, with your results.
You can also access your profile and change your data if required. Once you log out, you can log in to “My Class” from the “Access My Class” option, by simply logging in with your username and password in the “Access My Class” section.
How to take the course
Each course addresses a topic and is divided into several lessons. These are pre-recorded video lessons taught by a medical doctor and teacher and are accompanied by PowerPoint slides. The slides illustrate the explanations and are presented in-sync with the video. You can take the course at your own pace, by pausing and resuming it as often as it suits you.
Moreover, you will also find an abstract (summary) of the course, references recommended by the teacher (bibliography) and a self-assessment test with practical questions on the content. If you answer the test correctly (a score of 70% correct answers is mandatory), you can download the accredited Diploma.
How to do the test
The test is a standard multiple-choice questions (MCQ) test. You must mark only one answer for each question. You should answer all the questions.
You can do the test at your own pace. The system allows you to “Save” an unfinished version of the test and resume it at any other time, as often as it suits you. You can always retrieve the test in the “Test” section (it stores the last version saved).
Once you click on “Send”, the test is finished and you will know for once that you may not change or correct any of your answers. You will immediately know if you have passed or failed the test, and you will be able to compare your test answers with the correct answers and the teacher’s comments.
You have two chances to pass the test and obtain the Diploma. If you do not pass the first test, you can do it again and then, have another chance to pass.
Diploma and credits
You must pass the test to have the Diploma which will be converted in credits. Once you pass, you can download your Certificate, which is also available in the student’s private session (“My Class”)
